Chicago Athletic Association Wedding with Alisha Tova

We’ve said it before & we’ll most certainly say it again - we absolutely LOVE working at the Chicago Athletic Association. The view of Lake Michigan is perfect, the ceilings and chandeliers are a joy and it’s easy to add decor to. For this wedding we kept things simple. Ivories and greens and lots of candle light (You can never go wrong). Enjoy the beautiful images from Alisha Tova Photography!

A sweet little summer wedding

This is an exciting time of year as we start to snap go through all the photos we took of our weddings throughout the year.  There are SO many beautiful images, we're not sure how to feature them all, but here are a few from a lovely summer wedding at North Pond.

Lauren & Jason

This is going to be a long post, because Studio Starling spoiled us with incredible photos.

Lauren & Jason's Edwardian wedding was so gorgeous.  Overgrown and filled with so many textures including lots of locally grown flowers.  Ceremony & reception both took place at the Cheney Mansion, on a beautiful October day.  Also, it was very exciting to see this wedding featured in the Chicago Sun Times!

Congratulations Lauren & Jason!

A fish & Bird WeddingWild bridal bouquet by Fleur, photo by Julia Franzosa Photography

Our very own Janelle who works with us and is the owner of the amazing Re:find Joy was wed over Labor Day weekend.  This wedding was so exciting, as we talked about it in the shop f.o.r.e.v.e.r!  Janelle, being a designer and stylist had so many fun ideas, completely trendsetting.  With her Bird & Fish theme, she gave us the full reign to design as we liked, after she told us her favorite flower choices (I mean, come ON!  I get to make whatever I want?!).  We filled up the Fleurmobile and headed on the road to Michigan!  Here are some of the photos from the crazy talented Julia Franzosa Photography, and HERE is a link to see the wedding featured on Wedding Chicks with SO many more great details!

Congratulations Janelle & Chris!  We all love you both so much!!!

Katrina & Jon

This is a couple that I just love.  They're bubbling and funny & sweet and just so in love!  I was honored when Katrina asked us to make their flowers, I remember chatting with her about rings and future dreams and plans and love.  When she told me they were celebrating at Revolution Brewery & Jaclyn Simpson was their photography, I almost squealed!  Perfect.

~~~

Congratulations Katrina & Jon!  Thank you SO much for allowing me to be part of such a special day!!!

Katrina & Jon's Wedding-133

Katrina was the sweetest and basically gave us carte blanche to  design whatever we wanted, based on her color palette.  That, my friends, is a florist's dream.

A film by XO Pictures of Emily & Cameron

You may remember theses images from last year.  Caleb designed this beautiful wedding at Salvage One (One of our top three favorite venues in Chicago).

Just today we saw the incredible film created by the wonderfully talented couple behind

XO Pictures, Tom & Jenny.  You can watch it right HERE!!! We love this couple.  They're sweet, they're sassy, they're adorable and they're in love.  To us, that also means they're a prefect match for your wedding day.

This wedding was so very beautiful, planned by Five Grain Events. Always flawless and always wonderful to work with.

Vintage, blue mason jars, mercury glass and oodles of candles.

Thank you so much to XO Pictures for the amazing video!! And once again, congratulations to Emily & Cameron!
